Dominance in the West (2014 Stanley Cup Review)

The NHL season is officially over with the end of the Stanley Cup playoffs and after an amazing postseason the finals would somewhat disappoint. Coming into the Finals it was widely considered that the two best teams had not necessarily made it. The New York Rangers were not the team that anyone expected to make it and that almost everyone expected to lose in the finals. They had amazing performances from Henrik Lundqvist and an emotional Martin St. Louis but to many, that was not going to be enough to get past anyone out of the west.

NHL Week in Review (June 9-15)

The Stanley Cup Finals would finally get underway as it seemed that this time may not even come before the season started. With a lockout to start the season the NHL was at risk of never seeing the Stanley Cup Finals this year. Thoughts of 2004-05 began to swirl with the players and owners locked in yet another battle over money while the fans suffered. In the end all would be solved as a new 10-year CBA was signed and the season was saved just in time.

Stanley Cup Preview

Sometimes it is best to go with your first instinct as a blogger that does predictions and I have learned this with the NHL season. In my 2011-12 season preview I predicted a Los Angeles vs. Philadelphia Stanley Cup Finals. I changed my tune though when it came to the playoffs as I then looked to a Nashville vs. Pittsburgh Finals.
